On Friday, the UK's High Court granted a warrant to enforcement officers working for the country's information commissioner to conduct a search at Cambridge Analytica's London headquarters.

It stems from claims over the harvesting of personal data - and whether it was used during Donald Trump's United States presidential.

Cambridge Analytica, which worked on US President Donald Trump's election campaign, has been accused of illegally mining tens of millions of users' Facebook data and using it to target potential voters.

Facebook recently suspended the firm from its platform, saying Cambridge Analytica had violated its policies governing how third-party developers can deploy user data they obtained from the company. Kogan had also passed information on to Analytica's parent company, Strategic Communications Laboratories, as well as Christopher Wylie of Eunoia Technologies, who helped found Analytica. EU, wrote in The Bad Boys of Brexit, a campaign diary he published after the campaign that the group had hired Cambridge Analytica on October 22, 2015 to use "big data and advanced psychographics to influence people".

"We will now need to assess and consider the evidence before deciding the next steps and coming to any conclusions".

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology issued the notice to Cambridge Analytica, which has been accused of serious breach of propriety information and misuse of data meant to profile and influence voting behaviour.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also been requested by lawmakers in the U.S. and U.K.to testify before investigative committees regarding Facebook's role in the data breach.

The warrants issued under the Blighty's Data Protection Act by law requires that the receiving end is given seven days of notice in writing.

Ms Denham said she wanted to access the firms servers in order to investigate the use of personal data in political campaigns.

Curious passers-by asked the waiting press what the fuss was about.
